Icon image not displayed in taskbar for a program that is running.

    Icon image not displayed in taskbar for a program that is running.

    Hello all,

    Just recently I noticed that a few of my programs are not displaying the icon image in the taskbar when the program is running. All I see is a generic file image. If I pin the program to the taskbar the correct image is displayed. The desktop app is also displaying the correct image. I am curious to how to fix this. I have been searching online but have not found a correct solution to my specific issue. Any help would be appreciated. I have attached an image to show the issue. Thanks!

    Note: This is on Windows 10.

    Hello @Tsecor, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help if it's just corrupted.
